Would you like a better understanding of HIV? Do you work with people who may be living with HIV or who are at risk of contracting HIV?
Brigstowe’s HIV Awareness Training empowers professionals with the skills and knowledge they need to work confidently with people living with, affected by or at risk of HIV. Our HIV Awareness Training is open to all professionals; from front-line support staff, managers or HR personnel. We have experience in delivering to a range of professionals including: social workers, medics, Avon & Somerset Police, prison staff, mental health care providers, housing associations and other voluntary organisations.
We tailor the training to meet the needs of your organisation or business. We will usually cover:
- HIV prevention and transmission.
- Clarify the definitions and differences between HIV & AIDS.
- Provide up-to-date information on treatment.
- Explore stigma and prejudice.
- Explain testing services.
- Promote best practice when working with a person living or affected by HIV.
- Inform participants of support available.
All sessions will include a guest speaker living with HIV who will share their experience in order to help trainees better understand what it is like to live with HIV.
“Such clear, concise & informative training – It allowed me to have a better understanding working with clients.”
“Thank you so much, it was fantastic. I have had such great feedback from staff and prisoners. Some said it was the best training sessions they had received and that was from the staff. Prisoners are raving about it; it’s created such a buzz around the place.”
